I was pulled over for a light out in my license plate that mysteriously started working as soon as I went back and looked at it with the officer he didn't ask me if he could search my vehicle and I gave him permission there was a backpack in my vehicle that a friend left. Inside the backpack was a locked box he asked me for the combination I told him I didn't know it because it wasn't mine he thought it was strange was trying to pry open the box and decided to call in the dogs meanwhile I located on the phone the person that owned the backpack and gave the phone to the officers so she could given the combination or let them know that it was her but he hung up on her after throwing a biscuit on the box simultaneously with the dog jumping on it they said the dog got a hit so they open the box and there was a meth pipe and some pills that were blood pressure medicine I got arrested with two felonies 1 was possession of a controlled substance possession of a dangerous drug paraphernalia the two felonies were rejected and the paraphernalia charge I asked for a jury trial and it's been almost 3 years I just want this over with and not hanging over my head
